Computer stuff  
Today...we bought a new computer! Here's the story...

We went to the computer store (my mom and I). We found out from a very helpful tech guy and a very unhelpful salesman that once we buy a new hard drive and paid for the service charges and the data transfer and the new virus protection software we might as just get a whole new computer for a little more money. So we bought a new computer that's basically like our old one, but with more storage and memory, a better CPU, and a better CD/DVD drive (which was also in need of replacement on the old compie), and a different brand. We left it at the store for them to try and transfer the data from the old computer, and then once we take it home I can connect it to our old moniter and install the brand-new virus protection package and microsoft office and everything...

Yeah, apparently the anti-virus software we were using before was pretty bad...

And I'm really not upset to say goodbye to the old computer. It had wayyy too many issues.

And...if I get more issues, all you mac users can say "I told you so."

>_> sorry... XP

But, especially since we already have a perfectly good moniter, getting a PC just makes more sense right now.

Don't think I didn't spend a few moments at the store in awe of the macs and their compact-ness and everything...

You know, if you'd got a Mac....

Well, not that they don't have problems of their own. But at least they're rare and have no viruses and the Apple Store is wonderful and helpful and often free! And Macs are so pretty!

(Though I do have to keep my screen from falling down lately... stupid hinge that finally broke after four years...)

(And at least this PC is better than the old one!)

Well, the guy who helped us for most of the time yesterday at CompUSA was surprisingly helpful and informative!

But, yes, macs are very pretty...

(Do you know how much more they cost though? Especially since we didn't need a new moniter.)

They are wicked expensive, true. But, it pays for itself in lack of virus issues, fewer repairs, and love.

Well, I'll probably be getting a laptop within the next couple years, and at that point I'll definitely consider getting a mac.
